Contents:

The aim of the course is to acquire basic knowledge about scientific work and the practical completion of a scientific thesis. The theoretical basis will be trained in the following six modules of the e-learning course „Competence of information in the natural and engineering sciences: planning, researching, writing":

  • Modul A              Introduction to the content of the course
  • Modul B               Planning of the research process
  • Modul C               Methods of literature research
  • Modul D              Execution of literature research
  • Modul E               Review of scientific literature
  • Modul F               Scientific writing

 

In addition to the e-learning course, the practical process of a scientific thesis will be learned over the whole semester period in a group on current topics by the institutes of the KIT-department of Mechanical Engineering. The groups are supervised by the respective institutes and the theoretical basics are trained in further exercises.  

 

Learning Objects:

On completion of the course the students are able:

  • to structure and formulate a research question,
  • to plan projects in a task- and resource-oriented way,
  • to apply creativity techniques within a team,
  • to investigate and to evaluate scientific resources and to derive information,
  • to summarize work results in a well-structured written report,
  • to present scientific problems/results in an oral presentation,
  • to work actively in a team in a task-oriented and constructive manner.

 

Examinations:

  • Module tests within the e-learning course
  • Completion of four group exercises
  1. Structuring of a formulate research question
  2. Development of a milestone plan
  3. Preparation of a list of scientific literature
  4. Structuring of the scientific thesis
  • Preparation of a scientific thesis of at least 30 pages according to a given guideline
  • Preparation and execution of a scientific presentation of maximum 30 minutes

 

The course will be passed, if:

  • the exam registration in KIT-Campus is done until 2020/07/24.
  • all e-learning module tests are passed and the certification is submitted until 2020/05/20.
  • all group exercises submit on deadline:

2020/05/22: Research question and milestone plan

2020/06/12: A list of scientific literature

2020/06/19: Structuring of the scientific thesis

  • the complete scientific thesis is submitted until 2020/07/17.
  • the scientific presentation is submitted until 2020/07/26 and you have to present your work until the end of the examination period at the supervised institute.

 

If you have not submitted the respective exercises by the deadline, you will have further three days for the completion. If you have not submitted the exercises after the additional time, the course will be failed and must be repeated in one of the following semesters.
